The focus lies mainly on the waters in Srinagar, with the river and lakes of the city dotted with colorful houseboats and making the relatively cool summer capital a popular tourist destination.
Srinagar is known for nature, parks, historic sites, scenic drive, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the striking landscape at Sonamarg, don't miss a visit to Shankaracharya Hill, contemplate the waterfront views at Nigeen Lake, and take in nature's colorful creations at Nishat Garden.

To find photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Srinagar trip planning app .

New Delhi to Srinagar is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train, bus, and taxi. Traveling from New Delhi in August, expect Srinagar to be slightly colder, temps between 31°C and 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) to allow time to take a bus to Pahalgam.
